NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Paducah Kentucky 
139 PM CDT Mon Jul 28 2014 


Short term...(tonight through Wednesday night) 
issued at 113 PM CDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


The short term portion of the forecast remains benign, but there 
are subtle influences at play to note. For instance, a ribbon of 
higher moisture in the 1000-850 mb layer was noted just to our 
east, resulting in thicker cloud cover from about Louisville Metro 
eastward, as some energy rotates down thru the primary long wave 
trof. The net result for US is diurnally enhanced cu fields over 
our forecast area. Surface td's were still running in the lower 60s at this 
writing, but upper 50s were starting to mix down in some locales. 


This drier surface air will continue to usher in this 
evening/overnight, as high pressure ridges at the surface to our 
west. This should allow lows to drop to near or at least flirt 
with records in the 50s tonight. 


Tmrw looks similar to today as surface high pressure anchors 
overhead/across the Tennessee River valley. Another pleasantly 
cooler/drier day will be on tap. 


The high shifts east by Wednesday, and while we continue a dry and 
altogether pleasant forecast, we do see dew points creep upward a 
few degrees, as the high shifts predominant low layer flow from 
nlys to easterlys or perhaps southeasterlys. And while overall 
columnar moisture remains sparce, mid level lapse rates do 
approach 6c by Wed PM. This could potentially result in an 
isolated shower/storm developing in the PM heat, but said pops 
appear too low to warrant mention attm. 


Long term...(thursday through monday) 
issued at 139 PM CDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Medium confidence in the extended possibly even less confidence in 
precip chance and timing. 


Models are trying to keep a light northerly flow that does drift to 
the east in time. However the flow is so light with surface high 
pressure dominating the extended. The models continue to agree on an 
upper level trough persisting over the eastern half of the country. 
The axis of this upper level feature should pivot through the fa 
Thursday. This combined with aftn Max heating could trigger a storm 
or two but lack of moisture is a major concern. Dewpoints around or 
in the 60s are usually adequate for storms but very dry aloft. 
Another mitigating factor is with flow aloft fairly unidirectional 
with surface I.E. Mainly north or east...would not expect much in 
the way of moisture advection. Otherwise as head through the weekend 
and into next week the trough will slowly shift eastward toward the 
East Coast...decreasing rain chances. 


The models continue to agree on a unseasonably cool week with some 
hints of warm up next week as temperature slowly warm through 
the lower and middle 80s.

Aviation... 
issued at 113 PM CDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Diurnal cu fields producing mid PM cigs in the low VFR range 
mainly, should disperse with loss of diurnal fuel, with clearing 
sky noted tonight. Tmrw should see same by mid morning, with 
perhaps some mid cloud cigs advecting in as well.
